The University of Wisconsin men’s and women’s rowing teams will host a regatta at Devil’s Lake State Park on May 2nd, 2015. Competing teams will come from Boston University, MIT, Minnesota, Michigan State & Northwestern University. This will be the first time we’ve had a rowing competition on the lake since poor weather in Madison forced the race to move to Devil’s Lake in 2012. You can read more details about the race and its effects on the local tourism economy in this WISCNews Article.
I still remember April of 2012… standing on south shore beach with one of the competing coaches wives chatting as we watched races, shivered and wiped the rain from our faces. It looks like we’ll have better weather this time around! (Forecast)
